  2. 2. Define company-wide policies Eliminate the need to manually ensure policy compliance by using Policy-Based Management to define configuration policies and apply them to servers, databases, tables, and other targets across the enterprise. Enforce these policies proactively, on a scheduled basis, immediately following changes, or explicitly in real time. Organize servers into groups and apply policies to the group to scale management of servers. Performance Data Collection View performance data with built-in reports such as server activity, disk usage, and query activity reports. Employ real-time diagnosis of performance Use SQL Server Profiler to capture server events for real- time diagnosis. Correlate traces with performance counters to analyze events and diagnose issues. Policy-Based Framework Ensure security and apply best practices Define policies that enable and disable server functionality and ensure a minimal attack surface. Use best practice policy notifications to check configuration and database settings and to warn about and prevent security loopholes. Automate administration and deployment Use the Windows PowerShell™ language to build robust administrative scripts and to manage across multiple SQL Server Profiler Microsoft products. Use the SQL Server provider to quickly navigate paths and locate objects on your servers. Use a set Monitor the health of server instances, diagnose problems, of SQL Server cmdlets to perform actions such as running and tune performance by using Dynamic Management scripts that contain T-SQL or XQuery statements.
